Book Description:

With extraordinary clarity, Systems Biology: Principles, Methods, and Concepts focuses on the technical practical aspects of modeling complex or organic general systems. It also provides in-depth coverage of modeling biochemical, thermodynamic, engineering, and ecological systems. Among other methods and concepts based in logic, computer science, and dynamical systems, it explores pragmatic techniques of General Systems Theory. This text presents biology as an autonomous science from the perspective of fundamental modeling techniques. A complete resource for anyone interested in biology as an exact science, it includes a comprehensive survey, review, and critique of concepts and methods in Systems Biology.
